VISION EASE is committed to supporting continuing education and helping build your knowledge of the optical and lens industry. That’s why we’ve made available a suite of complimentary, on-demand online trainings.


Lesson 1: The Visual System

Our eyes and brain work together to help use see. Learn about the major structures of the eye, how the Emmetropic – or “normal eyes” – ability to correctly refract light, understand the role of photoreceptors in the retina and recognize the relationship between light and vision.

Time: 21 minutes


Lesson 2: Refractive Error

Quality of sight is dependent on the shape and size of certain structures in the eye. When these structures are abnormal, vision problems such as nearsightedness or farsightedness occur. Learn about ametropia (the abnormal eye), different refractive errors and the cause and visual effects of presbyopia.

Time: 15 minutes


Lesson 3: The Eye Exam – Eyeglass Lens Rx

During an eye exam, a refraction is performed to determine the patient’s best visual acuity and whether refractive errors are present. Understand how visual acuity is measured, learn how to read and interpret a lens prescription and learn how to calculate reading and intermediate power.

Time: 20 minutes


Lesson 4: Correcting Ametropia – The Eyeglasses Lens

Ametropia – or abnormalities in the eye – cause refractive errors such as myopia (nearsightedness) or presbyopia (farsightedness). These errors can be corrected with eyeglass lenses. Understand how lens power is calculated and the type of lens used to correct myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism and presbyopia.

Time: 16 minutes


Lesson 5: Lens Material Options

From glass to polycarbonate, all lens materials have a unique set of features and benefits based upon their material properties. An understanding of these properties is important in order to offer patients great vision in lightweight, cosmetically appealing lens. Learn about available lens materials and the properties, limits and benefits of each.

Time: 18 minutes
